The Shooting Gallery has announced the films it has acquired for its third film series at Loews Cineplex Entertainment theatres across North America.
The six independent films which will screen over a three month period in 16 markets are Pawel Pawlikowski's British critical hit Last Resort and Kieron Welsh's Irish comedy When Brendan Met Trudy both acquired from The Sales Co; David Maquiling's comic US independent Too Much Sleep, acquired from Open City Films, Jamie Thraves' British ensemble drama The Low Down, from Film Four International; Marziye Meshkini's Iranian triptych, The Day I Became A Woman, written by Mohsen Makhmalbaf and acquired from his Makhmalbaf Film House; and Shinji Aoyama's 220-minute Japanese epic Eureka, which was acquired from The Wild Bunch.
Under Eamonn Bowles, president of Shooting Gallery Films, the film series was launched in fall 2000 with a package including the subsequent breakout box-office hit Croupier. The second season featured Laurent Cantet's Human Resources and Bahman Ghobadi's A Time For Drunken Horses among others.
Bowles acquired the films for the series along with Ryan Werner, director of acquisitions and distribution.
